Matt Hamshaw is back with a vengeance after a brace of assists nuked Northampton on Saturday. Having Nobbled the cobblers Crewe is next up, and the question is: can he conjure a Cup upset in tonight`s Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.


Two superb corners off either side off that cultured right boot did for the Cobblers, but Crewe will pose a much more potent threat after a five goal haul on Saturday. Then again conceding five ahead of a trip to your nearest and dearest who are becoming the crazy gang of League two suggests a goal feast at the Moss.


An inspired Simmo signing this summer, Hammy has already set up four goals as well as acting as a mentor, a voice of experience so to speak, for the younger members of the Moss Posse. The winger is simply unplayable on his day, but has adapted to the three man midfield shaft needed for Simmo`s ‘spear`.


Not wishing to paint to rosy a picture ahead of the Moss clash, but Matt is more than capable of putting some gloss on a silk finish or two.
